This 90 year old villa has been completely renovated by us and transformed into the warm and cosy Hostel Costel. There are 3 shared bedrooms and one private room besides various common areas (living, chill-lounge, garden, etc.). Situated on the riverbanks our location is close to the historic city-center, campus area and all the party places. If you are just passing by or staying longer this is the best place to start your trip through Timisoara/Romania!

I love this place. Me and my girlfriend were welcomed by Spiri and we got very fast comfortable. We met the volunteers which are very open and friendly. We could spend all of our stay in the big garden and the perfect-looking kitchen.

We only stayed for one night but it had a lovely atmosphere, and we needed some help with getting transport to our next destination and the guy at the reception was so friendly and helpful and got us all sorted. Good showers as well, although one of the toilet doors didn't lock. The kitchen area was very good as well, although the gas oven wouldn't light so we had to ask at the reception and they had to do it with a lighter, but definitely a nice hostel!

The location is quite central and at 10-minutes walk from the local bus that connects the city to the airport. Very friendly staff; quiet most of the time, the rooms are clean; access even at night time is easy. The unisex downstairs bathroom can be considered a low - less clean and less private.

I travel often to Timişoara and I always stay here. The guests at the bar downstairs can be loud until 12-1 am on weekends, but other than that, I love the location and amenities. Staff is friendly and helpful (ask them for any recommendations) and the prices are great for being downtown Timişoara.
